  1. My whole family enjoyed

  2. This is a very simple smoothie to concoct. It’s nice to skip the Starbucks and quickly make it yourself for a fraction of the cost, plus you don’t have to worry about unhealthy ingredients. Instead of almond butter, I threw in whole almonds instead (works great) and left out the maple syrup. Thank you Rachel!

    • My pleasure Amy, I am so glad that you enjoyed it! Yum I love whole Almonds blended into a smoothie. Happy New Year. XX
